Southern Gem

Old Waverly is a course that never grows old when playing over and over again. Paired with the contrasting Mossy Oak Golf Club across the street, West Point is lucky to have one of the top 36-hole destinations in the Southeast. With the contrast the two courses offer, a traditional Southern tree-lined course with Waverly and the wide open links-style of Mossy Oak, this is undoubtedly one of the most unique golf getaways in the country.

A southern charmer

You can't beat days like the one I spent playing Old Waverly.

The morning was a highlight in itself - watching from a luxury box as Mississippi State University beat Texas A&M, a top five team. After the half-hour ride back to from Starkville, I teed off with long-time Director of Golf Chris Jeter for a round that ended with a par on no. 18 in utter darkness. What a marathon adventure.

This classic course designed by Jerry Pate and the late Bob Cupp remains one of the great semiprivate clubs in the South. It hosted a memorable 1999 U.S. Women's Open won by Julie Inkster and could someday host another premier event.

Golfers must stay on property to gain access. There are villas, condos and homes for rent within walking distance of the clubhouse, where fantastic weekend buffet breakfasts and lunch/dinner meals are served.

The course winds through the neighborhood, although there are secluded stretches on both nines. The back nine flirts with Lake Waverly for its most testing holes. There's nothing fluky or awkward about the layout. It's just purely enjoyable golf from start to finish.

A Mississippi Treaasure

Whether staying for the weekend or just the day, Old Waverly is a fantastic golf experience. With the addition of its second course in 2016 (Mossy Oak Golf Club), Old Waverly will rank toward the top of golf trips in the south and in the country. I've played this course for years and will never grow tired of it.

I'm a big, big fan

A buddy of mine and I tacked on a day at Old Waverly before heading over to a Florida-Alabama football game. I'm glad we found a way to make it happen. We played 18 holes, had a late lunch, then went out for another nine holes before dark. This was a fantastic experience and the course was in fabulous shape. The main takeaway is that this is a place that you could easily play everyday and never get tired of it. It's fairly generous off the tee - you can spray it a little - and is playable around the greens. If you miss one you have several options how to play the shot toward the hole. I can't say enough great things about the staff and the members. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating and were genuinely thrilled to have us play there. It was Southern hospitality at its finest.
